Recognising and honouring a Member for their contribution to society and the Collegiate with an Honorary Fellowship and a cash award.

Years of Fellowship

How does this work?

As a hub for some of the best and brightest individuals from around the world, the Graduate House boasts of Members that contribute significantly to the society at all levels and the collegiate.

We recognise these Members on a yearly basis at our Annual General Meetings to honour their work and award them for the positive impact and influence they create at global level and within the Graduate House community through their support of other members, residents and students.

What have previous awardees been recognised for?

Previous awardees have been recognised for paving the way for crucial new areas of study; creating and developing programs and schemes to train governments; and entrepreneurs who have played an important part in reforming national markets.

What does this award include?

The Graduate House Fellowship includes an award of $10,000 AUD in recognition of their contribution towards society. The award also includes a Graduate Union membership for a period of five years.

Why are we crowdfunding this Fellowship?

The members that are awarded have supported people in the community at large as well as the Graduate House community through their work and volunteer activities. They act as mentors and guides through their wealth of knowledge, experience and pathways.

As people that have serve the community, we opted to crowdfund their recognition as a means for the community to give back to those that have worked the majority of their lives to contribute to society.

Crowdfunding this award creates the opportunity for people to directly support these awardees and get behind them as a community of backers to acknowledge their hard work and legacy.

This welcoming event is a precious and intriguing experience for me, in which we probably would not have the chance even in China.
I feel honoured to be a part of it, cultivating myself and witnessing the further development of Australia-China friendship. Graduate House is not only a prestigious platform, it has a loving community which makes it a fantastic place to live, learn and grow. I could tell Professor Wang was quite happy about Graduate House and with the Honorary Fellow Award, he is already thinking of sending his little granddaughter here!

Help us honour and celebrate those that have improved our society at large and our community at Graduate House.

By donating to this campaign to honour the next Graduate House Honourary Fellow,  you are partnering with us to give back to those that have worked towards creating a more informed and educated world for us.

Although the award is $10,000 we are crowdfunding for $10,500 to cover the 5% fee associated with the platform. As this is a Graduate House venture, the fee amount will go into the endowment fund to ensure that this venture is continued in the years to come.

All donations over $2 to the Graduate House and the Graduate House ventures and projects are tax deductible.

FAQ

How many awards are given annually?

Although there are a number of people with significant contributions to society, the Graduate House recognises one person as a Fellow annually. Apart from this, the Graduate House publishes stories and articles about our Members in our monthly newsletter and the Melbourne Graduate to recognise and acknowledge our members.

How are Graduate House Honorary Fellows nominated?

As a member based organisation, members of the Graduate House have the opportunity to nominate Fellows. The Graduate Union recognises individuals – Professors, Scholars, Economists, Academics, Professionals and other residents and members for their actions. Other individuals who have contributed significantly to the graduate collegiate outside of the membership association can also be appointed by members of the association.

What is the selection criteria?

As there are many nominations and all members carry a high calibre of excellence and service, the Council will keep the following considerations to award a fellowship.

A College Fellow so appointed by Council will be:
a. of international excellence and renown in their field of research and tertiary education;
b. at professorial level and employed (on faculty) at a university at the time of appointment; and
c. a contributor to and supporter of the Association.
